Just like to check with you regarding the above phenomenon.
Just met a seller not long ago to look at his monopod and found that the mounting screw of the monopod actually come off together with the ballhead. It can be screwed tight but just need a twist of moderate force and a turn or two and the ballhead will come off with the mounting screw still attached to it. Is there something wrong? I rejected the seller because of this.
Came back to look at my Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod and see that the mounting screw is set inside the mount and solid like hell. Anyone have the same experience before?
